Anyone know how long till the power combo comes back in stock? I was going to use the stuff from my crack yak for a extra slick since i broke the spar and can't seem to get it as stiff as it once was but i still love that plane!

Video is up and working now. Very nice, must be pretty disorientating flying in the dark like that. Is that the strip type lights running off 12V from the balance plug?

What a fantastic start to the light nights Clocks went forward at the weekend and the first working day ended up with a good few hours after work down at the golf course giving the wee Extra Slick a good wringing out in perfect conditions. Nice and warm just the slightest hint of a breeze and great light, hope that's a sign of the flying season ahead of us

What's better than building 2 Twisted birds at the same time...

It took a minute or two or three to get orientation right.. lol Once you get used to is is super awesome. I run the lights off of a bec tap plug from Rcdude.com. Just run all the lights to a jst plug then plug it in when I want them on. It is a bit heavy but works pretty good. Some moves like KF spins are actually easier now. I tried to light up the nose a bit on this one. My other night plane is a Funcub. But I can fly this one in a much tighter space.

3 Twisted birds! I live with one, I can't imagine what it would be like with 3

Good luck with the builds, I'd end up with all the bits mixed up and end up with some sort of freakish hybrid

Hey I tried your hinge break in tip, and it worked great. I only had to weigh down the folded hinges for about 20 min.

Nicely packed, that's about as far as I got, but I am psyched! That was FAST.

If you enjoy this model, then after a while you can safely switch to a large model of Telink.
This model flies fine.

32" airplanes worth the attention, but they are poorly tolerated by wind.

I've decided on the 32" Crack Yak in Blue. I like the smaller battery packs required and only needing 3 servos. I have access to a gym so the smaller size will really help. It won't be my first 3D foamy as I used to own a McFoamy.

I see a dude with a Futaba TX in his hands flying what is either an RS-352 or maybe it's a Telink X Slick. A bit hard to tell, the crystal ball is a a tad fuzzy. He's scratching his head, ostensibly because he's not sure which one he should get.
